If you enjoy films with jet black humour, then you'll love this film. Notable for the unapologetically acid narration by the excellent Christina Ricci, it also boasts a scene-stealing turn by Lisa Kudrow as Martin Donovan's dowdy best friend Lucia. The dialogue absolutely crackles with bitchy one-liners that are instantly quotable. Superb.

This boring film never gets going. I blame the director, he must be pretty rubbish at his job - he should become an accountant. The main actor Bill sleepwalks throughout the film, you expect him to nod off at any minute. Lyle Lovett looks like some shapeshifting alien clone with lizard eyes, you could not imagine any woman on the planet wanting to sleep with him. Ricci drones on and on and on and on with this boring voiceover and she is a pale skinned overweight Barney with terrible dyed blonde hair. Kudrow tries to act but whines on and on and on and on... They guy who plays Matt looks like some dumb male model. Also, the guy Leonard from big bang theory is in it as a gay loverman. Overall the film is boring and you don't care about any of them or the stupid ending which is typical clichéd Hollywood. I would recommend that you buy instead Ninja Terminator which is a much better film and much funnier and only costs one penny. The Opposite of Sex is The Opposite of a Good Film. Be'lie that. You'll regret buying it. The other seven reviewers are all 15 year olds.

Lisa Kudrow! Ah she is so good as Lucia, I've always admired Lisa ever since her early Friends days. The characters are really well developed and the plot is crazy - but it is a great narrative. Christi Ricci's wry/sarcastic humor throughout kept me laughing, a Southern state bred, youngster on the run. . .

A great rare gem.

I know there are other 5 star reviews on this item, and this is going to be just another. I'm not going to repeat what the others have said (or at least I'm going to try) because all I can say is watch this. Full of diaphragm shaking one liners and bittersweet black-to-the-soul comedy this film is a must. And also, if you thought Lisa Kudrow reached her peak in "friends", think again :D
